Stan Allen documents two realized buildings and two competition projects for contemporary art museums. All four projects continue a line of design research first proposed in the 2010 competition entry for the New Maribor Art Gallery in Maribor, Slovenia. These projects illustrate strategies of serial aggregation, part‐to‐whole relationships, and a geometric language that recalls crystalline geological form. The design process is documented in detail through drawings, diagrams, and study models.
